LSCOBA 2006 Spring Golf Tournament at Huizhou Lakefront Golf Club on 19 May 2006
A total of 35 old boys took part in this event, and new faces included Vincent Ma (82) and Danny To (95) (the youngest participant up-to-date). Typhoon Chanchu, after causing significant damages in Philippines, was threatening Hong Kong and the nearby coastal regions of Guangdong during that week, and raised some serious concerns as to whether we had to postpone the event. Nevertheless we were again blessed by Mother Nature and the weather turned out to be perfect for golf on that day.
The winners were as follows
Gross & Net Champion
Tony Cheung (77)
Paulus Choi (78)
Robert Cheng (77)
Dale Chan (75)

During the prize-giving lunch, I thanked the golfers on behalf of our President for their support to donate HK$10,000 to the "La Salle Study Centre" project run by Rev. Bro David Liao in Changjiao, Guangdong, China to help the village children in learning English and computer skills. Our Vice-President Charles Chan (77) also gave a brief report of our trip to visit the Centre during Easter.
My special thanks go to our double Champion Tony Cheung (77) for donating HK$2,000 towards the golfers' fund according to the La Salle Golfers "local" rules, as well as Thomas Tung (77) and Ian Kwok (81) for assisting me in organizing this event. In addition, I have to thank all the participants for their support in joining this tournament. See you next time.
